Two new pieces of video up at Crooks and Liars. In the first Microsoft accepts the award given to them by the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center in 2001 in which they tout their work against discriminatory ballot initiatives. In the second, Pastor Ken Hutcherson calls Steve Ballmer a liar for denying that Hutcherson’s influence caused Microsoft to withdraw its support for the gay rights bill that recently lost by one vote in Washington state.
It’s frightening to see how the atmosphere that has been created by the religious right and the Bush administration can allow pressure from a single Christian egomaniacal crackpot to change a huge corporation’s anti-discriminatory policies. Sick, sick, sick.
